Making a statement or a video that with the deliberate intention of provoking an argument or fishing for negative comments.
A few ways of trolling as a youtube content producer include effective use of bluffing, pranking, spoofing, & sarcasm, such as using hyperbole (lHateEverything), pretending to be dumb & illiterate (Our Third Life, TheGamerFromMars, & the author of My Immortal), or acting in a derogatory entitled manner (SammyClassicSonicFan & SuperMineCraftKid). The better your acting skills are, the more likely viewers are to be fooled into thinking it's genuine & make posts pointing out how stupid & wrong you are. Another method wildly used by 4chan is to get people's hopes up with a negative outcome, such as creating believable adds for a new console or fake tips to fix a phone or console that ultimately ends up breaking the device.

you know that douche-bag under the bridge that wouldn't let people through? well trolling emulates that. also the world is flat and aliens account for all the unexplained things, like gravity. trolling is the one true path to seeing past all the education that's supposed to help us. i mean come on, what the fuck is up with the concept of money?! if i give you one paper money, i should get one paper money back. so if i give you paper with Abe on it, i expect any other celebrity (Abe Lincoln is secretly a singer). i think i like George Washington the best though. don't go and like try to spread this truth. seriously, don't... unless your a ginger with soul... but that's impossible cuz gingers have no soul. trolling is the noble art. don't abuse it, kinda like you shouldn't abuse hookers.
